RegEx 301 Redirect

I'm trying to set up a 301 redirect in my htaccess page where a certain subfolder and ANYTHING after it will redirect to a specific page.

For example:
I want http://website.com/service-guide/ or http://website.com/service-guide/folder1/  or http://website.com/service-guide/folder1/folder2 to redirect to http://website.com/static-page.

I have been trying to make this work with RegEx but can't figure it out. I'm totally new to RegEx so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think having a simple redirect should be enough since you are not trying to preserve parameters or anything complicated.
Redirect 301 /service-guide  http://website.com/static-page

Open in new window


Doing it this way should include any subfolder of service-guide.

That works if it's only "/service-guide" but when there's more than that "/service-guide/folder1/folder2, etc" it throws up a 404 error. Do you have any other suggestions to make it work?

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/service-guide
RewriteRule .* http://website.com/static-page [R=301,L]

Open in new window


If:
  The URI begins with "/service-guide"
Then:
  Rewrite the entire URL to http://website.com/static-page, mark it as a Redirect so that search engines do not index this page, and make this the Last rewrite.
